GOP Candidates Take Shots at Donald Trump

A number of candidates took turns ripping front-runner Donald Trump during the second Republican presidential debate Wednesday night on CNN, according to Thomson/Reuters.

“Mr. Trump, we don’t need an apprentice in the White House; we have one right now,” said Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Another GOP contender, Carly Fiorina, blasted the billionaire’s failures in business. “You ran up mountains of debt, as well as losses, using other people’s money,” she said. “Why should we trust you to manage the finances of this nation?”

Jeb Bush, whom Trump recently accused of having “low energy,” also had a message for his rival. When a debate moderator asked the former Florida governor which Secret Service name he would choose for himself as president, he replied: “Ever-ready. It’s very high-energy, Donald.”

Bush defended the decision by his brother, former President George W. Bush, to invade Iraq in 2003. “There is one thing I know for sure: He kept us safe,” the younger Bush said. Trump answered: “I don’t know, do you feel safe right now? I don’t feel so safe.”

In the first event of the evening, a debate featuring the four candidates with the lowest rankings in national polls, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham called Trump a “cartoon character.” Another longshot contender, former New York Gov. George Pataki, declared that the real-estate mogul is “unfit to be president of the United States.”
